Weld Has Earned GOP Nomination
State Sen. Ryan Weld, R-Brooke, has served Northern Panhandle residents — and other West Virginians — well in the state Legislature. He has earned the Republican Party’s renomination for his post.
Voters in Brooke, Hancock and Ohio counties, as well as part of Marshall County, will see Weld’s name on Republican ballots for the June 9 primary election. Putting a check mark beside it, either on a paper absentee ballot or electronically at a polling place, is the smart move.
Weld provides clout for our area, through his post as Senate majority whip. In addition, he serves on critical committees, some of which he chairs.
He has been effective, both as a senator and in two terms previously in the House of Delegates. Just during his time in the Senate, 39 bills Weld has sponsored have been enacted.
Though a staunch conservative, Weld has a record of standing up for his constituents’ interests, even when other party leaders disagree. His allegiance is to the people of the First Senatorial District.
We endorse Weld, and recommend that district voters casting Republican ballots vote for him in the primary election. Keeping his strong voice for our area in the state Senate is important.
